Once in a while a musician comes along with impeccable technique, deep understanding of the jazz repertoire, an innate tendency to swing and the rare ability to communicate the heart and soul of a tune to listeners. That musician is Beegie Adair. About her music Adair says, "Falling in love with jazz is like falling in love with a person, except with jazz you never get over it." About Beegie (say B-G) Adair, what do others say? Jazz great Helen Merrill salutes her "inventive jazz sense, her wonderful sense of time and improvised melody." Christopher Louden of Jazz Times magazine says Adair is "an accomplished artist with a delicate touch." The Los Angeles Times calls her music "Elegant." Entertainment News writes, "Beegie Adair is one of the finest piano players in the world." Intrigued? So are thousands of jazz fans, who agree with critics about Adair's sophisticated and listenable jazz performances, and who have made her recordings among the biggest sellers in the jazz world. When she's not in the studio or appearing in clubs and concert halls around the country, Adair wears a variety of hats, such as servicing as teacher and mentor at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Recently she co-wrote and scored an innovative theatrical production, Betsy, which in April 2006 premiered off-Broadway in New York. She performs solo and with the Beegie Adair Trio, whose members include drummer Chris Brown, a veteran of the Maynard Ferguson Ensemble, and bassist Roger Spencer, who has played with the Les Brown Band, Ray Conniff, the Page Cavanaugh Trio and Pete Jolly. They are, she says, "my main guys. They're so tuned into the way I visualize music that it's effortless to play with them." In clubs and concert venues from Los Angeles to New York, Beegie and her "main guys" win kudos from audiences and critics alike who appreciate her unique take on classic jazz. She fell in love with the music a long time ago, and indeed she's never gotten over it -- a love affair the jazz world is much the better for.
